Sun 7 Feb - Mega Roadie, to the end of the road

 An absolute cracker of a day!  Abbie and I had a bit of fun with hats and these cool cloud formations.


Our mission, to get as close as the road allows, to Farewell Spit.

Brief diversion to check out this Ballroom Cave we heard about from the Tango Club. Up Cooper Road! (for those who don't know my maiden name is Donna Cooper)

Google maps takes us over a bridge of the most amazing river!


So turns out Google Maps took us on the most direct route to Ballroom Cave, but it was to the rear of it, which turned out to be someone's private farm land!  A quick hello to the cows and we decided to abandon this mission.

In trying to get back on track toward Farewell Spit we discover what (for me) has been the BEST FIND of the whole trip!!  A place so after my own heart!  I would LOVE to have a place like this on our land!  SOOOO amazing!

Have to put in a few pics to help you grasp the coolness level of this place (feel free to scroll past if it's not your thing :) This incredible place has been in their family for 5 generations!!!








They even had K-bars and toffee milks!!!!

The amazing couple at The Langford Store put us on to our next chance discovery: Salisbury Falls.  If the water hadn't been so FREEZING we'd have all been in for a swim, but we chose to be on the reserved side since we were all just recovering from a cold.




Lizette, trying to look like she's enjoying the water, but her legs were stinging!!

Collingwood stopover.  Nice picnic by the beach. Refreshing watermelon, with pip spitting competitions of course!!


This beach is only ankle deep for so long! If you've got great eyesight, you might spot Lizette and Zach way out, and Matty making his way back.

Finally we get to Farewell Spit, Lizette finds another "Freddy" for Matty to share.





So many stunning views on the way home!


And of course the perfect end to a day of adventures is pikelets for dinner!! Mmmmm!
